Good question romero, I was about to ask that, too.

Could you elaborate on that?
I've applied at both schools, too. In case I'll get admission to both, I'm not sure what to do. Everyone keeps saying that Chicago is a great school, but only because they are ranked higher than GT you would take Chicago? What about the town itself, isn't Washington a nicer place to live than Chicago, especially in the winter?

It would be nice to hear something from current students or alumni. My interest is antitrust, and I was surprised to see that Chicago, the supposed cradle of US antitrust, doesn't offer even a third of the courses in antitrust that GT offers.

I think nobody at Chicago really cares about the rankings... Almost 3 years have passed since I graduated from my LL.M. and I would chose Chicago again... First of all the size, not only of the LL.M. program, but of the Law School is great (no more than 500 students total...). The professors are just great (not only during classes but in non-academic environments as well; for example, you are invited by some huge guys to dinner at their homes -i.e. Baird, Posner). The workshops are just great. On the negative side you have to study as hell, LL.M.s are weighted equally than JD and as a result really hard exams.
In any event, I guess GT is also a great school and regardless which one you chose you'll be fine... I think there is only a slight difference in the percentage rate of acceptance into the LL.M. program...
Best of lucks!

Hey!
Do any of you know what it takes to gain admittance to GULC's LLM program? I am currently at a top 25 law school (I'll graduate in May of this year). I have a 3.4 and am in the top 30% of my class and am on the Law Review. Also, I have published a law review article in the Law Review. However, I'm not top 15% of my class and this worries me. Also, I'm applying for an LLM straight out of law school. Any insight? I'd really rather not waste paper and money!

I applied with very similar stats (identical more or less) and got in...you should be alright.

I have to say: Chicago.

My brother attended classes there in 2006, and all Rej vividly said is absolutely true.
